Do 2010 Macquarie Is. stamps exist as vert se-tenant pairs?

Post by agaosi »


Can anyone tell me if the AAT 2010 Macquarie Island stamps exist as vertical se-tenant pairs.

I have come across a block of 4 (see below) which indicate that these stamps were issued in vertical columns, however the gutter block has a checker board design to it which could indicate an existence of vertical se-tenant pairs.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If anyone has an image of a full sheet then please upload it

Reason: Added paragraphs and spacing and “air” – always a superb idea on Bulletin Boards! Use the "PREVIEW" button folks. It is there for a GOOD reason. Used the AddSpace button to the absurdly uncropped images.

Thanks,

I have seen this from Aus Post, but it still begs the question if the sheet of 50 (se-tenant) as is mentioned was issued such that vertical se-tenant pairs would exist.

and the answer is no.

It turns out that a full sheet of these stamps has one configuration of vertical columns above the gutter (ABABA) and another configuration of vertical columns below the gutter (BABAB) (see part of full sheet below)
